    [​IMG]I really don't think it is her foot as the other one kinda looks that way underneath,, she doesn't have any wounds but redness under wing and her rear end is dirty,, but she has been gone so long I thought for sure a Fox got her... this picture shows she holds it up, when she puts it down she right away puts it back up, I checked her out and can not see anything visible,, she looks real good , red comb , eating well , was real thirsty, she is in the coop resting... should I be doing something for the poor girl...or just watch her...thanks Kristin

    Not an expert, but looks like she might have bumblefoot. Compare to this picture from another BYC poster.
